Gaming performance

Let's see how good Core i5-2537M and E-450 are for gaming compared with game system requirements. Remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect real performance inaccurately.

Advantages of Intel Core i5-2537M

41.7% faster in synthetic tests
More powerful video core
Finer manufacturing process technology (32 vs 40 nm)
Less power hungry (17 vs 18 watts)
HyperThreading (allows one physical CPU function as two logical ones. It increases performance, since while one logical CPU is waiting for data, the second may still do useful work)
AVX (Advanced Vector Extensions - a set of SIMD instructions working with 128- and 256-bit registers)
Quick Sync (hardware acceleration of video encoding and decoding for Intel CPUs. Speeds up video encoding by times, but at the cost of somewhat lower quality)
AES (Advanced Encryption Standard instructions set - hardware acceleration of AES encryption and decryption. Speeds up encryption software, e.g. Veracrypt)
x86-64 (a general name for 64-bit extension of x86 instruction set. There are AMD64 and Intel 64 versions that differ very little)
TXT (Trusted Execution Technology - protects the system against viruses and rootkits residing in BIOS or in a boot sector)
vPro (a marketing umbrella term for several Intel technologies: AMT, TXT, EDB, VT, Anti-Theft and some others)

Advantages of AMD E-450

Somewhat newer (22 August 2011 vs 1 February 2011)
AMD64 (AMD CPUs 64-bit architecture. Almost identical to Intel 64, save for some little and rarely used nuances)

So, Core i5-2537M or E-450?

Judging by the results of synthetic and gaming tests, Technical City recommends Intel Core i5-2537M.
